A sleek hairstyle is a great option for lots of different events. Getting your hair sleek and keeping it that way can be a little on the tricky side, however. To help you create this great finish on your locks, try the following tips!

Sleek Hairstyle Tips

Model with sleek blonde hair Ensure your hair is well nourished. It’s easy to get and keep your hair sleek and flat if it’s in good condition. Smoother your locks in a hair treatment a few days before styling, or use an overnight treatment the night before.

Detangle your hair with a comb before styling. This will get out any knots and result in easier styling.

Wash with a shampoo and conditioner that are designed to promote sleek locks.

If your hair is already relatively straight, apply a serum to damp locks before getting out your heated styling tools.

If your hair has some curl to it, apply a serum and a straightening spray to give your locks some extra help before styling.

To get really sleek, frizz free hair, use this styling plan:

  • Blow-dry your hair with your blow-dryer until your locks are 80 percent dry.
  • Divide your hair into manageable sections.
  • Use a round hair brush and your blow-dryer to further smooth and style each individual section.
  • Use a hair straightener to give extra sleekness to the sections, especially the ones around your face.
  • Finish your styling with some cool air from your blow-dryer’s cool shot button. This will set your style.
  • Apply a small amount of smoothing shine to palms, rub your hands together and then gently smooth your hands over the top of your locks. This should take care of any fly-aways and add some shine.

One final tip, when styling, remember to remove every ounce of moisture in your hair. If you don’t, your locks will become less sleek as the day goes on.
